3 or More Tuesday


Every Tuesday, Tam @ The Gypsy's Corner hosts a meme called 3 or More. It can be a collection or a vignette of 3 items, just about anything falls under the category. For today's post, I wanted to share my favorite Valentine items. My all-time favorites!


This is a Valentine given to me by my oldest grandson Connor when he was about 7. The boy has cars on the brain so if you get a picture w/ a truck on it, then you're something special. ;o)

This is an old candy box, given to me by hubby many years ago.

This tn candy box was my grandmother's. I don't know if the candy came from my grandfather or not, it may have come from one of her grands but I ADORE it.


Love these mugs. Every year, I unpack them & think "Oh I forgot about these!" I'm pretty sure someone made them in a ceramics class somewhere...there's a few flaws but it only adds to the charm, I think.



The 2 Valentin'es on teh left were my father-in-laws as a boy. The date reads 1945 on them. The patriotic & war-time theme dates them too though.



They're not my prettiest Valentine stuff but they are the dearest to my heart & they'll always be displayed w/ pride. Happy 3 or More Tuesday !

I think those are all very special Valentine goodies, Cami! The ones of the heart always are the most beautiful because they are the most heartfelt. Thanks for sharing...
